From your website:

“Contemporary history proves that modern political leaders, devoid of a moral inspiration and relying solely on a mass basis (might makes right), proves ineffectual in time of crisis.”

One of the designs of the Constitution was to frame a government that rested upon the people, yet prevented majoritarian abuse. Two hundred plus years later, we have regressed into something of a representative democracy, where there are few if any limits, and certainly little protection of property.
